Michel is a well known musician, dancer, choreographer and actor. Now, to continue working, he needs to replace his old and heavy accordion, for another one, more modern, ergonomic and lighter, so that he can tap dance while he plays and also to facilitate it's transport.

Michel is a well known French musician, dancer, choreographer and actor, who has been living in Portugal for more than 45 years. Now, to continue working, he needs to replace his old, heavy accordion (about 30kg), which needs time-consuming and expensive maintenance, for another one, more modern, ergonomic and lighter, so that he can tap dance while he plays and also to facilitate transporting it to the different places where he performs.

The aim of this campaign is to raise the necessary funds to buy an accordion from the renowned French brand Légende, exclusively dedicated to producing the most beautiful and finely tuned accordions in the world, made using artisanal methods and which guarantees excellent acoustics and incomparable ergonomics. The model will be chosen according to the total amount of money raised and the purchase will be made as soon as this campaign ends.

As these last two years have not been easy, Michel needs our help to buy this new accordion so that he can continue to accept invitations to participate in various shows and events.

The Association Companhia Maior, of which Michel has been a member since its creation in 2010, is launching this campaign to help him in an active and collective way.

We are counting on your support!
